      Starting up an ecommerce business

      Hi,

      My name is Danny, I am 16 yr old with a passion for IT and Business!

      I am looking to start up my own ecommerce business, dealing in designer clothes, and was wondering if anyone could point me in the way of any reputable distributors and give me pointers on how to keep my books in the green.

      Obviously I know I'll have to spend to gain, I have put 2k aside for SEO alone.

      Thank You

      Danny

      Hi Danny,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      As a UK trader, the best investment you could make is getting an esources membership, you will get much more value than you bargained for.

      Secondly, do not spend a dime on SEO, in the sense that you should be focusing on automating the SEO process as much as possible and invest your money into creating useful content centered around your niche.

      You can then SEO that content cost effectively using social bookmarking, which can be automated. Also use free sales channels like Google shopping to gain sales cost effectively, and start building up a social profile on Facebook to create a following. Repeat the process, and reinvest some of your profits into more expensive SEO processes that can bring you good return for your money.

      Hope this helps, and of course always focus on your users, they are your oracle and must be listened to at all times.
